Sony unveiled the Sony alpha DSLR-A850 Full-Frame SLR Camera last month. Our review partner Digital Trends already got their hands on one and published a review. The Sony alpha A850 scored an Editors' Choice Award, read this review to find out why.
Quote from the review: "Even in this era of rapidly plunging HDTV, Blu-ray disc player and game console prices, some devices remain very expensive. Case in point: full-frame DSLRs. These cameras use sensors that are the same size as a frame of 35mm film, so photo quality is outstanding, but you’ll pay for this performance.
Until the introduction of the new A850, the most 'affordable' full-frame models were the 21.1-megapixel Canon 5D Mark II and 24.6MP Sony alpha DSLR-A900, each $2,699 for the body alone. Yeow! This fall, Sony introduced the slightly modified 24.6MP A850 for $1,999, a hefty $700 savings. This is a good drop, but still it’s a rarified atmosphere. That said we couldn’t wait to find out if the new Sony was worth the new 'low' price."
